The dictionary's compilation started in 1996 when the author, with the help
of Russian friends, published volume 2 of his Russian translation of Lamrim
Chenmo. Recently, the dictionary's scope is expanding with a stress on
traditional Tibetan medicine, as a result of the author's work on the
translation of Tenzin Phuntsog's (bstan 'dzin phun tshogs) The Crystal
Necklace (shel phreng) into Lithuanian, carried out in cooperation with
pharmacologist Donatas Butkus.

The dictionary currently contains 58,829 words and phrases.
It will be updated at irregular intervals.
